To save CA from bullies, restore its autonomy and independence

Good points of information Ali. The situation is getting clearer for me now.

My assumption is that the funds at the CA are actually accessible to the
Ministry on request & availability – by the letter of the law.

If the MoICT is going outside of the set regulations and these allegations
are true then both the PS & DG (for attempting to confer powers of approval
that have not been assigned to him) ought to be immediately dismissed from
office.

The CS should also issue a comprehensive statement to Kenyans indicating
how this could have been happening without his knowledge or otherwise.

These are public funds that we are talking about. I am now therefore
demanding an explanation as is my right as a Kenyan citizen.

Regards,

Kevin
